Plans for a trip

So, I haven’t written in a while….
The big news is that I’m planning a trip to Japan in November. I plan on visiting my incredible girlfriend in Tokyo. I’ve got the tickets and my passport and a rough idea of what I’m going to pack. Now I just need to learn Japanese (by November, hahaha, yeah right!) and get a small camera to take with me. I don’t want to travel with my full camera gear, so I’m thinking about some sort of 4-5 mega pixel camera.
I know Nikon makes some higher end Coolpix cameras that work with the SB-800. But I haven’t decided if I want to take the flash with me, so that might not matter.
Anyone out there got advice on what to see in Tokyo? I already plan on hitting the Sony Building, Tokyo Tower, Ueno Park, and the palace complex. Plus, of course, Harajuku for some crazy cosplay pics. 🙂
Anyway, I gotta get some sleep. But I’ll leave this open for comments for a little while until the spammers get out of control.
